Grateful Autumn Leaves

Thursday, August 20, 2015

 
Today I am joining the ColourQ and CAS(E) this sketch! with a simple design that has a gorgeous color combination.  I love these colors together: Ocean Drive, Gala Red, Wild Mango, and Silver Lining.
 

 
I used these colors to stamp images from Autumn Leaves. I paid attention to which colors overlapped each other. For example, the Ocean Drive and Wild Mango look pretty overlapped, but I did not want Ocean Drive and Gala Red to mix on this project.  They would create areas that I felt were too dark.  Also, when stamping multiple ink colors to create a background I tend to stamp the smallest image in the darkest or most saturated color.  Moving towards the larger images my colors get lighter or less saturated. I don't always like this best, but I start there.  

 
I stamped my sentiment from Grateful Greetings in Black dye ink.  Then, I layered up the card front with another panel cut from Steel Mill cardstock to accentuate the light silver outlined images.
 
 
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
